Getting to Kyoto’s Bamboo Grove
The Bamboo Grove is only a 10-minute walk away from the Saga Arashiyama Station of the JR Sagano Line. So if you have already have a JR Pass, then you can use it to reach the site without paying extra. Be sure to take the regular JR line and not the express one, as this does not stop at Arashiyama.
Another option to get here is to take the Henkyu Railway to Arashiyama Station, which is about a 15-minute walk to the Bamboo Grove.
If you are not in a hurry and would like to see the rest of the Arashiyama and Sagano sites like the Tenryu-Ji Temple, consider renting bicycles for leisurely exploration of the district.
